A woman who traveled hundreds of miles from home for cancer treatment was lifted by a message of hope written in the snow.
Michele Schambach, from Guatemala, was diagnosed with stage 3 oligodendroglioma, a fast-growing tumor in the brain, according to officials from the Cleveland Clinic, as reported by Fox News.
She was advised to travel to Ohio to get specialist treatment and while there she saw snow for the first time.
Dr. Marie Schambach, Michele’s daughter who is also from Guatemala, was also enjoying snow for the first time and decided she would write a message to her mom in it.
According to Fox News her mom was at the hospital for follow up treatment and her spirits needed lifting.
Her daughter wrote “Mom, be brave,” in huge letters in the snow so Michele could see it from her hospital window.
In a Facebook post Marie wrote: “My mom (is) in the best hands in the world at Cleveland Clinic in Ohio! Hey Brain Cancer … you picked the wrong super woman 💪🏼💪🏼💪🏼 !!!”
Marie also hoped to lift the spirits of other patients at the hospital.
What a beautiful way to convey a message of hope. Sending good health thoughts to the brave Michele.
